#1 The 8 Pillars to Beat Diabetes!


Here are the 8 major pillars (components) of the lifestyle change that you will adopt for this challenge:

  1. Eat every day within a six hour window. One way to do this, which is the way I do it, is to skip breakfast, except for a cup of bulletproof coffee or tea (coffee or tea with cream and butter, or coconut oil and butter). Eat your first "real" meal at lunch which should be between noon and one pm. After this meal eat nothing until dinner, which should be somewhere between 6 to 7 pm. After this meal you will eat nothing more for the night. Your next taste of "food" will be your bulletproof coffee in the morning, and your next "real meal" will be your lunch between 12 and 1 pm. Alternatively you could eat a real breakfast and lunch and have your bulletproof coffee in lieu of your evening meal.
  2. Do not eat any high-carb or even medium carb foods. For these four months give up all breads, pasta, breakfast cereal, potatoes, and rice, along with most fruit (apart from avocadoes and berries). Do not be deceived into eating "healthy whole-grain" foods. Just avoid them altogether. You can eat chaffles in place of bread, cauliflower rice instead of real rice, avocadoes in place of potatoes. There are some low-carb breads you can buy in stores, but test these with your glucose meter and make sure that your glucose is not spiking excessively. Sometimes these breads labeled low-carb can fool you.
  3. Focus on meats and salads, and other low carb vegetables. Hi-fat dairy products such as heavy cream and cheese can help fill you. Also eat eggs in abundance, without guilt. Follow the menu plans, but you can always make allowable substitutions if a particular meal is too difficult to make, too expensive, too hard to find the ingredients, or you just don't like it.
  4. Unless you are a vegan or vegetarian, Mondays are "Carnivore days." Eat meat, cheese, dairy, eggs – basically low-carb foods coming from animals. If you are a vegan or vegetarian, eat as low carb as you can. Salads are a good choice. Cheese can be filling (if you allow yourself to eat cheese). And if you are a vegetarian who eats eggs, eat them in abundance to keeep glucose low.
  5. The rule is that for these four months, your goal is to get your A1c and glucose levels down. For these six months this goal takes priority over nutrition. What shall it profit a man if he gets lots of vitamin C each day, but his blood sugar is running in the 200's, 300's, or 400's? After you get your glucose levels closer to normal, you can experiment with eating some iffy foods like a small bowl of bean soup, a clementine, or half of a small apple. But for right now, keep your eyes on the prize!
  6. If the menu items do not fill you up, you can add any "very-low-carb" items to your meal to fill you. This could include boiled eggs, block cheese, chaffles, hamburger patties, sausage, etc. Or you can simply make more of the items listed. If you are eating two eggs and 3 slices of bacon, and they don't fill you, then make two more eggs and three more slices of bacon. If you are eating a hamburger patty and a salad, and this does not fill you, then make two hamburger patties and a bigger salad. Or you can always have a large mug of bullet proof coffee after your meal, which is quite filling. (If caffeine is a problem for you, use decaffeinated coffee.)
  7. Eat dinner relatively early. Try to begin your dinner around 6 to 6:30 pm and be finished by 7 pm or a little after. And once dinner is over, eat nothing else. No evening snacks! Kitchen is closed until tomorrow.
  8. Fridays and Saturdays you are allowed to have some form of keto dessert. In the menus I have included many "keto desserts." If these are not enough, go to YouTube and type "keto dessert" in the search box. You will find enough desserts to last you for several lifetimes.

Audio Devo: "Why is there suffering?"

People have debated this question for millennia. And we cannot speak concerning specific individual questions of suffering, but the Bible clearly speaks as to why suffering has always been a part of the human experience.
